Default Re: Can't read drivers

It is _not_ recommended to install the drivers manually
in Ubuntu. Install them by using the package management provided by ubuntu or the restricted driver manager.
(which uses the package management as well)

If you really want to install the driver by hand
(you probably don't want to) and you do know
exactly what you are doing (you probably don't):

Read the README provided, set the file as
executable (chmod +x) if nececary, quit
your X session and run it according to the readme.

However: this _will_ lead to problems with
modules provided by ubuntu.
